The idea of love is the scariest thing in the world for me, I've hurt others because of this ridiculous and intense fear of mine, it doesn't only cause me pain but others as well. This poem is expressing some of what I feel, I wrote it mainly because people I know tell me that the best way to relieve stress is to write down your anxieties and fears. I take pity on any of you who can relate to this but never the less thank you for reading.

Everyone has fears

Whether it be shadows or spiders,

Everyone deals with them

Whether they be conquerors or hiders,

 

 

My fears are many

I hide them from sight,

They are my weaknesses

That I keep locked up tight,

 

 

My biggest one haunts me

It keeps me up late,

It's the worst of all

The cruel dealings of fate,

 

 

It's this intense fear

Of letting others come close,

It overpowers it's victims

And I am it's host,

 

 

I feed it and cower

While it eats me away,

It forces me to run

And never lets me stay,

 

 

It hurts people around me

Who dare to come near,

It lashes out and attacks them

My cruel heartless fear,

 

 

It's self preservation

It makes me selfish and cruel,

It stabs people where they hurt

And I am it's tool,

 

 

It makes me want to run

As far and fast as I can,

To never look back

And never be seen again,

 

 

Though I hurt others

I'm hurt most in the end,

By the end of every battle

I can barely stand,

 

 

Now I'm alone in a corner

With no one in sight,

My fear takes me over

I can barely put up a fight,

 

 

Alone is where I end

My fear has won,

And all the pain I have caused because of it

Cannot be undone,

 

 

My fear is one word

That everyone knows of,

It's powerful and scary

And it's the overwhelming fear of Love.
